This recipe comes form The Canberra Times Sunday Magazine and LeggyPeggy says it is 'divine'. It's very easy and yummy. I didn't have any fresh herbs when I made the sauce, so used dried ones. I just shook them into the sauce until I thought that it smelled nice and looked like a nice consistency. Not very scientific, I know. Although it is very yummy as is, next time I make it I intend to grill, rather than fry, the eggplant just so's I don't ingest quite so much olive oil. The introduction to the recipe mentions eggplant's propensity to absorb all available oil and although I squeezed the slices between paper towel to remove some of the oil, there still seemed to be a fair bit. And I used parmesan cheese rather than the grana padano. I think grilling the eggplant will give it a slightly different, but still very yummy, flavour. And I didn't peel the eggplant. I like my food to be visually pleasing as well as yummy and I think the glossy, dark skin is very nice to look at. Happy eating!
